Italian Herb Biscuits are spiced up light, flaky and buttery biscuits. With Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese, these can be the star of any meal or chopped up to the best crouton you will ever have.
Not only are these the best biscuits ever. My son Madden who is the pickiest eater I have ever met, ate 2 with his kale salad and loved every bite of it. I honestly can’t believe I just wrote that…Madden and kale in the same sentence.
I was recently at the gym, of course watching the Food Network as I ran on the treadmill, isn’t that an oxymoron? And I started watching a new show Southern at Heart. I absolutely love this show, my new favorite. Damaris Phillips is just a sweet as can be and her recipes are drool worthy. But what I loved about this episode is she said something that struck a chord with me. She said, “Take any of your favorite ingredients/seasonings and turn them into a biscuit”. And that is exactly what I did with these.
We were have homemade Caesar salad with grilled chicken and I wanted something to go along with it that is when I came up with these biscuits. Not only were they amazing, they even made the best croutons ever! My kids ate these biscuits up. Out of the 15 biscuits, there were only 3 left over and only because I stopped them. My daughter, Jojo said they tasted like her favorite restaurants bread stick and pizza. She actually split hers in half then sprinkled cheese on and heated them until the cheese was melted. This was oh so good! My husband followed doing the same thing.
I know without a doubt these will be in our near future, like maybe tonight!
I can’t wait for you to try these Italian Herb Biscuits, you and your family will love them!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 6 tablespoons chilled butter
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese, optional
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium mixing bowl shift together flour, baking powder, 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, sugar, salt, and parmesan cheese if you are using.
Using a pastry blender, your hands, or a knife and fork, cut in the 6 tablespoons of butter until the flour resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the milk and stir with a fork until the mixture comes together. On a lightly floured surface pull out the dough and knead until it is smooth.
Roll out dough until it is 1 inch thick. Cut out dough using a 3 inch biscuit butter, or you can cut into squares. With remaining dough, reform and roll out to 1 inch and repeat until all the dough is used and made into biscuits.
Arrange biscuit dough on prepared baking sheet. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning with olive oil, then brush the olive oil on top of each biscuit, generously coating. Place in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until risen and a golden brown.
Serve immediately, or set on counter or serving dish until ready to serve.
